Keeping in line with Georgia Tech's goals of being a green and sustainable campus, eSignature enables paperless documentation requiring signatures. eSignature helps to streamline business processes, making institute workflows digital and accessible from anywhere with any device.

2018-05: Welcome to Georgia Tech's eSignature application utilizing DocuSign technologies. Faculty, staff and students now have access to an efficient digital signature solution.

2018-07: You can now connect with GT Esignature Via MS Teams.

What are the components of a transaction?

Similar to a paper signature transaction, eSignature transactions can have one or many documents to be signed. An envelope is a container that holds the documents in a single transaction together through the eSignature process. Documents can contain common user input fields such as: initials, signatures, date and textboxes.

Who can use Georgia Tech eSignature?

Georgia Tech eSignature is available for use by the entire campus community. Staff and Faculty will be able to create, send and sign envelopes. All Students will be able to receive and sign envelopes. Students working on behalf of a university group and authorized by faculty or staff will be able to create and send envelopes. To request employee level access for students, a faculty or staff member should include the student's information, affiliation and business purpose on this form.

How will I know when a document is finished in the signature process?

Requests for signatures as well as transaction updates are delivered to recipients via email. After documents are sent for signature, the sender will receive updates during the signing process when recipients view and sign. Once everyone in the signing distribution completes their signatures, everyone in the group receives an email that the signing process has been completed.

How long with my documents be available in DocuSign?

Documents 'in process' and completed will be accessible within DocuSign for six months from the send date. DocuSign is not a document repository. Signed documents that need to be saved should be kept in a secure local location or department shared location. Please adhere to university and departmental record retention policies.

How do I contact the sender if I have questions about the document before I sign?

To contact the sender, you can simply reply to the email requesting your signature.

What devices can be used for eSignatures?

On any device where you have access to your email, you can complete an eSignature transaction- web browser on a computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Where can I learn more about eSignatures and DocuSign?

DocuSign's support site has more information for document senders as well as signers. There are written explanations, guided steps and training videos.
